Missteps

One misstep and you find yourself falling helplessly into the abyss of samsara. This past weekend reintroduced me to the plurality of samsaric experience: i discovered a good, Dhamma friend had died, hosted a monk and sponsored his teachings all the while my mother was visiting. You would think i would remain extra heedful under such conditions but i slipped (no precepts were broken in case you were wondering) and am now paying for it.

How to escape the depths of purgatory ?  Metta and karuna of course. Sukhi attanam pariharami.
